These classes will build upon the previous Human Rights classes and will apply the learnings to the Fashion sector (hence, Sustainability/Human Rights). Students will look at the global trends in sustainability, global supply chain, employee rights, and community outreach whilst upholding Human Rights. The workshop will avail itself of case studies of companies to show students the different ways companies have either breached or protected human rights.
